Asbestos abatement

is required whenever asbestos containing material (ACM) will be impacted, including during building maintenance, renovation or demolition or any activities that may intentionally or unintentionally disturbed.  The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), US Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and the New York State Department of Labor (NYSDOL) have stringent requirements for asbestos abatement that are based on the friability of the ACM building material and amount of ACM that will be disturned. A restricted containment of the work area is always required and specialized engineering controls and clean-up must be used to meet clearance criteria.  Most projects must be monitored by an independent firm such as UNYSE.

Lead abatement

is required when a child has been diagnosed with an elevated blood level (EBL), whenever Federal Housing Assistance exceeds certain amounts and when the goal of lead hazard control is to permanently eliminate lead-based paint (LBP) or lead hazards.  Interim controls are used to reduce LBP or lead hazards temporarily, and lead safe work practices must be used during renovation, repair and/or painting (RRP) in housing built before 1978 where children live or could live and in child occupied facilities , like kindergartens and day cares.   HUD requires LSWP during nearly all activities that disturb LBP in subsidized housing.   All lead hazard control must be accompanied with work area containment, controls and specialized clean-up followed by a thorough clearance examination by UNYSE.

Hazardous Materials Remediation

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) regulates the clean-up of and remediation of hazardous materials and wastes that have been identified in containers, vessels, soil or liquids.  On-site hazmat remediation may include temporary removal of the hazardous waste, construction of a secure landfill on the same site, and proper replacement of the waste. It may also include treatment of any contaminated soil or groundwater. UNYSE prepares health and safety plans (HASP) that OSHA certified contractors use to complete remediation to meet DEC criteria, with the best interests of the client in mind.
